My Music

The Music of Mons

I have been writing music since I was very young, but have only recently begun to publish my work online.  This is a collection of all of the music that I’ve posted on my website thus far.  There are several ways to listen to my music.  Check them out and thanks for visiting my humble little place on the net!

Update: Preview all of the songs from the new album here: http://www.monstunes.com/album/

1.  Listen through the Reverbnation player below (it’s also on every page on the sidebar).  This features some of my more popular songs which I have not yet posted on the site.  Songs such as Angelus, Dandelion and A Ballad for Valentine are softer, moody pieces.  Beneath The Ice, Young Boy and Qiwang are more upbeat with synths and drums, while Winter Melancholy, Simple Needs, Beside You and Broken Hearts are purely piano.  You can also download the songs through the player (top link beside my photo).
